Austin Events-Dog Days of Summer

We are officially into the dog days of summer but there are still plenty of Austin events to attend in between floating in the pool and lying in the backyard hammock.  I’ve included a few ideas below.  I particularly want to highlight the gallery reception, semblance, happening tonight.  This exhibit showcases the whimsical mixed media artwork of Cathy Savage.  You can find Cathy’s original art here on blueZelia.
